Independence Day Speech by President Trump




Below is the transcript of the speech from youtube, apologies for the awkward way it's transcribed, it's just how it is and I don't have the time to painstackingly remove the time stamps and edit. I couldn't find the full transcript anywhere so this will have to do. Or you could watch the video, since it wasn't broadcast on the television.

04:07
it is the chronicle of brave citizens
04:10
who never give up on the dream of a
04:12
better and brighter future and it is the
04:16
saga of thirteen separate colonies that
04:19
United to form the most just and
04:21
virtuous Republic ever conceived on this
04:26
day two hundred and forty three years
04:29
ago our founding fathers pledged their
04:32
lives their fortunes and their sacred
04:34
honor to declare independence and defend
04:38
our god-given rights Thomas Jefferson
04:52
wrote the words that forever changed the
04:54
course of humanity we hold these truths
04:56
to be self-evident that all men are
04:59
created equal that they are endowed by
05:01
their creator with certain unalienable
05:03
rights that among these are life liberty
05:07
and the pursuit of happiness
05:15
with a single sheet of parchment and 56
05:20
signatures America began the greatest
05:22
political journey in human history but
05:25
on that day the Patriots who would
05:28
determine the ultimate success of the
05:30
struggle were a hundred miles away in
05:33
New York there the Continental Army
05:36
prepared to make its stand
05:38
commanded by the beloved General George
05:42
Washington as the delegates debated the
05:52
declaration in Philadelphia
05:54
Washington's army watched from Manhattan
05:57
as a massive British invading fleet
06:00
loomed dangerously across New York
06:02
Harbor the British had come to crush the
06:06
revolution in its infancy
06:08
Washington's message to his troops laid
06:11
bare the stakes
06:12
he wrote the fate of unborn millions
06:16
will now depend under God on the courage
06:20
and conduct of this army we have
06:22
therefore to resolve to conquer or die
06:35
days later General Washington ordered
06:39
the declaration read aloud to the troops
06:42
the assembled soldiers just joined an
06:45
excited crowd running down Broadway they
06:48
toppled the statue of King George and
06:51
melted it into bullets for battle
06:53
the faraway King would soon learn a
06:56
timeless lesson about the people of this
06:59
majestic land Americans love our freedom
07:03
and no one will ever take it away from
07:06
us
07:21
that same American spirit that
07:24
emboldened our founders has kept us
07:27
strong throughout our history to this
07:29
day that spirit runs through the veins
07:31
of every American patriot it lives on
07:35
and each and every one of you here today
07:38
it is the spirit daring and defiance
07:42
excellence and adventure courage and
07:44
confidence loyalty and love that built
07:47
this country into the most exceptional
07:50
nation in the history of the world and

07:56
ever was before it is its strongest now

rugged American character led the
08:30
legendary explorers Lewis and Clark on
08:33
their perilous expedition across an
08:35
untamed continent
08:37
it drove others to journey west and
08:40
stake out their claim on the wild
08:44
frontier devotion to our founding ideals
08:47
let American patriots to abolish the
08:50
evil of slavery secure civil rights and
08:53
expand the blessings of liberty to all
08:56
Americans this is the noble purpose that
09:07
inspired Abraham Lincoln to rededicate
09:10
our nation to a new birth of freedom and
09:12
to resolve that we will always have a
09:15
government of By and For the People
09:24

makers from Ohio defied gravity with a
25:59
12 horsepower engine wings made of
26:02
cotton and just a few dollars in their
26:05
pockets just six years later America was

training its first pilots to take these
26:11
magnificent machines up and over the
26:14
field of battle in World War one our fly
26:17
boys rushed the skies of Europe and aces
26:21

saw the promise of this technology and
26:31
risk court-martial in his quest for an
26:35
independent air force he was proven

26:42
themselves and America stood in the way

American resolve and as President
27:12
Roosevelt said the Nazis built the
27:14
fortress around Europe but they forgot
27:17
to put a roof on it
27:23
so we crushed them all from the air 177
